thebroken started in mid 2003 and was hosted by Kevin Rose and Dan Huard, who were previously hosts on the TechTV network. The show is notable in the way that it served as inspiration for many other iptv shows of the same “underground” and “hackerish” genre. After the first three episodes were produced, a fourth episode was put out after a hiatus of two years. Rumors of a 5th and final episode have been circulation for a while, but there is no official news as of this time. Note: the titles of the episodes seam to have changed after the launch of Revision3. I will be using the original title scheme.
thebroken — Episode 1 — Enter thebroken
Our first episode jumps right into wardriving and wap hacking. Also learn the basics of social engineering with “free pizza 4 life”. And of course, a hacker tip with Ramzi.
thebroken — Episode 2 — Hacking with Ramzi “door buster”
If you’ve ever watched an episode of “Cops”, then you’ve probably seen a door battering ram in use. Now Ramzi shows you how to build a door buster for your own home use. For only $20 in parts from your local Home Depot, the door’s history.
thebroken — Episode 3 — return of thebroken
We kick it off with Windows password hash extraction and cracking. Also learn the basics of modding the Xbox, PS2 and GameCube. Plus, Ramzi’s back with a mission: impossible self-destructing laptop. And we sit down with Kevin Mitnick to find out what life is like for a hacker in prison.
